Spring/Summer make up looks Part 1.

Look 1- Model Alexandra
A very simple look with a warm pinky/apricot used on eyes/cheeks & lips. Skin was kept velvety matte, cheeks a hint of blusher working out towards the hairline. I created a *gloss* for the eyes by mixing a little shadow with some organic lip balm and lips were a *glaze of colour*. 1 coat of mascara and grooming of the brows and the look was finished.
Look 2- close up
Look 2
This look focused on the eyes and was about the *blending*, colour was graduated, so it started lighter in the inner corner and graduated to a dark colour at the outer corner, to balance the use of: champagne, beige and dark brown used on the eyes, the cheeks & lips were a peach tone which added warmth and *lifted* the look so that it was less neutral. The base was less matte and a delicate touch of highlighter was applied across the highest points of the face. under brow, along the bridge of the nose, along the highest point of the cheekbones and the cupids bow.

Every once in a while you come across a *face* that you could work on literally every day and for me Alexandra has that face. She reminds me of an 80's supermodel. Strong features and a face with amazing *personality*.
